Blurb:  College student Milo Brickman is in a bind as he tries to figure out how he’s supposed to afford a master’s degree. His best friend points him to an ad looking for guys to star in light kink scenes. It’s good money and his friend has worked for the company before, so Milo gives it a shot. On the job, Milo meets porn veteran Sullivan Craine, who Milo falls for—hard.

When Milo and Sullivan are thrown together for a scene all about denying Milo pleasure, Milo is desperate for more by the time the director yells, “Wrap!” Convincing Sullivan he’s okay with a boyfriend who is not only much older than him, but who’s made a career in porn, is a tough sell—but one that Milo is determined to make.


Review: So, the blurb pretty much tells this story in a nutshell. When Milo passes the interview, he is introduced to veteran Sullivan and they end up doing a scene together to break Milo in. The scene is intense with no sex involved, but instead, Sullivan brings Milo to the edge and back again numerous times. The two share a great chemistry, and Milo wants more. Sullivan is hesitant given their age difference and realities of their jobs, but he eventually gives in and offers to help take Milo the rest of the way.

I honestly really liked where this story was going. What is there is really good, but unfortunately, it ends before it really gets started. I wanted so much more of these two and really wanted to see how they worked out. This felt like the first chapter in a serial story, and I was left wanting but with no relief in sight. Makes it easy to imagine how Milo felt at the end of his scene. 😀

I’m really hoping there will be more to this story, and if there is, I’ll be ready to jump right back in.

Overall Impression: I liked it

*I received a copy of this book from the publisher in return for a fair and honest review.*
